June 23, 2016

The leading indicator of misconduct is pressure to compromise standards, according to the Ethics & Compliance Initiative’s Global Business Ethics Survey. The 2016 report, available for download free of charge, is a comprehensive analysis of over 13,000 responses on global indicators of fraud. What’s more, nearly three-quarters of employees who felt pressure also said they witnessed misconduct. In the absence of this pressure? Only 17 percent said they observed misconduct in their place of business.
